Temporary bus service to St Albans City Hospital

Published: 19 Aug 2019

A shuttle bus will run between St Peters Street (Stop 12) and St Albans City Hospital (Stop A), from 19 to 30 August while roadworks take place on Waverley Road.

The roadworks, being carried out as part of the Matthew Homes development, mean that Waverley Road will be closed for two weeks between Ladies Grove and Langley Crescent, and that the 301 and 653 buses that normally stop at the hospital will have to be diverted.

Derrick Ashley, Cabinet Member for Growth, Infrastructure, Planning and the Economy, said: “It’s important to us that people can get to and from St Albans City Hospital by public transport, and that’s why we’ve made sure this shuttle bus is running while the normal buses are diverted. I know it’s not ideal, but I hope people will bear with us while the roadworks take place.

“It’s important that new developments are accompanied by improvements to our transport network, as otherwise pressure on our roads will only increase. We’ve timed the work to take place during the school summer holidays when traffic is lighter to help keep disruption to a minimum.”

The roadworks will involve connecting the new homes development to mains drainage and resurfacing the road. During the works Waverley Road will be closed with a signed diversion route in place.
